Julie Feldt (BS Astronomy 2009) has started a job as an educator at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, working with the citizen science group on education research involving the different projects provided by Zooniverse.org. The work is meant to understand participant motivation and how the experience could be improved educationally. Julie will also be involved in other education-related events with the citizen science group, such as school visits, hack days, development of educational tools for the projects to be used in classrooms, and teacher professional development.
